In Studio A with Paris Manzanares

Paris Manzanares

Paris Manzanares is a postgraduate student at Interlochen Arts Academy, where she studies musical theater.

Paris says that musical theater in general is "a really magical experience."

She recently visited IPR's Studio A with her teacher and pianist Doug Peck, where she performed "Maybe This Time" from the musical "Cabaret" by John Kander.

Paris, who is from Kennewick, WA, said she was drawn to the song "Maybe This Time" because she resonates so much with the character of Sally Bowles.

"After really having an intrinsic acceptance for all things theater, acting, womanhood, and who I am as an actor," she said, "I just think Sally Bowles and I have a lot in common."

She'll appear next month in the Interlochen Arts Academy Theatre Division's production of "The Lower Depths."

Stefan Wiebe engineered this edition of Studio A.
